I'm not a wine guy either but do know they're very big on the whole terroir thing, and what I believe Cliff is talking about in that excerpted passage is the terroir of the music from that spring. It really was unique and 'of it's time and place.' I've always busied myself arguing how they're so clearly even stronger come fall ('cause *that's* when Keith finally settles in dammit!), but what he's saying above is don't throw the baby out with the bathwater on that- the spring sound is singular and to be championed. He certainly does a terrific job of that for my money.
